Falling Apart?

Opponents of the Washington Square do-over take note: The Tisch fountain was turned off and put under wraps today, reports the Washington Square Park Blog. Why? Some whack cracks. They don't know what caused them, but between tsk-tsk-tischs, point to breaks in the fountain's walls and workers apparently trying to fix them. "It was newly constructed and unveiled to the public in 2009," says the park blog. "So what went wrong? Was there faulty construction? Was it anchored properly? Did the Parks Department oversee the job?" Or did some old freak just decide to come back for that stash he left there in 1967?
